About this title


The first volume in this series dedicated to the great artists
of Bangladesh, previously unknown to most Western audiences.

The genesis of the modern art movement in
Bangladesh traces back to the partition of India
(1947) and the establishment of the Government
Institute of Fine Arts in Dhaka in 1948. This pioneering
group of artists included, among others, Zainul Abedin,
Safiuddin Ahmed, Anwarul Haque, and Quamrul Hassan.
This book explores Safiuddin Ahmed’s extraordinary
contribution to Bangladeshi art and society, in a series
of drawings, paintings, woodcuts and etchings, with
more than 200 beautifully illustrated colour and black
and white plates.

A special invitation to explore a life entirely devoted to art, at 89 years of age.
Ahmed’s sophistication, deep love of music, and strong inclination to literature have always influenced his unique visual language.

About the Author:

The Bengal Foundation in Dhaka was established by art connoisseur Abul Khair in the late 1980s, as a private trust dedicated to the promotion and development of art and culture in Bangladesh. Its aim is to encourage a regional exchange of ideas and practices and to present Bangladesh’s cultural heritage to the world. The Foundation is currently building the largest private arts museum in South Asia on the banks of the Bangshi River in Bangladesh. Its own Bengal Gallery of Fine Arts, regularly showcases the works of this country’s great masters and contemporary artists. Rosa Maria Falvo is a writer and curator specializing in Asian contemporary art. She curates exhibitions of the work of a variety of contemporary artists from this region.
